What should be my daily total fat intake?

A Answers (2)

  • Keep total fat intake between 20% to 35% of calories, with most fats coming from sources of polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated fatty acids such as fish, nuts, and vegetable oils. Consume less than 10% of calories from saturated fatty acids and less than 300 milligrams per day of cholesterol, and keep trans fatty acid consumption as low as possible.

    Research indicates consuming approximately 25% of total calories as fat, distributed between polyunsaturates and monounsaturates. The total amount of trans fat and saturated fat should comprise less than 5% of total calories.
